High School Lunar Research Projects
Between 2009 and 2013, CLSE’s High School Lunar Research Projects program provided highly motivated and dedicated high school students and their teachers an opportunity to participate in a two-semester lunar research program. Under the mentorship of a lunar scientist, students worked alongside their teachers as they undertook a national standards-based research project that engaged them in the process of science while supporting the science goals of the NASA Lunar Science Institute (NLSI). At the end of the program, students presented their research results to a panel of lunar scientists, competing with other teams for a chance to present their work at the annual NLSI Forum. The program concluded following the 2013 competition. Below is a list of schools that participated in the 2012-2013 program. The Student Presentations link below will direct you to the archive of student presentations. Program evaluation data were presented at the 44th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in The Woodlands, TX. The abstract can be read here.
